Notts County vs Oldham
English League Two
Date: Tuesday, 6 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Meadow Lane Stadium (Nottingham).
Both Notts County and Oldham Athletic are struggling badly coming into their mid-week clash at Meadow Lane Stadium. The hosts, who featured the promotional play-offs last term, sit third from bottom after 16 games in the new season.
Oldham were hoping to make it a one-year loan in the fourth tier of the English football after playing in the League One last year. However, they are also miles off from the promotional quest sitting 17th ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Nottingham.
The Magpies appointed Harry Kewell as the new head coach back in August, but the former Leeds United and Liverpool star is yet to make an impact. The team has actually not been pulling up any trees under the Australian legend. Notts County will come into this off the back of three defeats and a draw in last four league matches. The draw came on Saturday when Kane Hemmings and Elliott Ward notched goals in a four-goal thriller against Port Vale.
Notts County vs Oldham: Head-to-head
Notts County have the chance to make it all square at 15 wins apiece in the H2H record with a three-pointer here.
It’s been three years since these two likes last played each other, though.
Oldham were more successful of late, winning two and drawing two of last four meetings with the Magpies.
Notts County vs Oldham: Prediction
The Latics made it four defeats in last five league games when they fell away at Stevenage 3-2 on Saturday. They also revealed way too many defensive holes in recent outings. The team shipped five in last two league losses.
Knowing about Notts County’s defensive woes, we just can’t imagine any of these two sides keeping their met untouched on Tuesday. The main bet will thus be both teams to score at 1.72, while you can also back three or more goals in the contest at the sky-high 2.05 odds.
